Not a word about the contamination of the ocean.

Author — Alex Z

You make it sound like all the contaminated water is being stored in reality it's been free flowing directly into the Pacific Ocean every day since the triple melt down occurred all those years ago.
If there was not the continuous flow of groundwater over the melted cores the radiation in the air would be far worse than it is currently.
Your video suggests that things are under control nothing could be further than the truth.

"not as toxic as chernobyl" - exept for the fact that in '86 there was no nuclear waste or anything radiating flowing in massive amounts into the ocean ...

People say Chernobyl won't be livable for 20, 000 years and Japan claims it's ok after 9? I find that hard to believe.

Yet they are KILLING the pacific ocean with the radiation.

"Are you sure it's safe?"
"YA SAFE!!!"
are you really going to take their word for it being safe after they have continuously tried covering up and minimizing the damage that was done and is still ongoing? Are you crazy?

One of the reactors melted through the containment vessel and is still in the ground.

The reporter tries to fill the absence of scientific background and structured information with his "oh, I am so scared" voice.

This is a way to get people to "think" it's safe to return. Government wants them to move back To fukushima.
